Whatever it is, it seems like perhaps it's Space or celestial themed. RMC Raptor from the local supplier, perhaps?

Silverwood is hosting the Golden Ticket Awards next weekend with RMC so it would be perfect if they collaborated again on a project.

If this park ever adds an RMC (whether that's 2020 or not), I will finally decide to make the 10-hour drive north to visit this park. There just isn't quite enough there at the moment to draw me in.

EDIT: Just read their Facebook post and it says an "addition to their entertainment lineup" so I wouldn't get any hopes up.

Looks like they are getting some kind of night time drone show.

They are calling it "Light up the Night" (It could be worse folks)

It sounds fun, especially if its like a unique show, with unique patterns. But I don't think they really needed a night time show, they need more rides and slides.

I'm glad they are getting something new, but I think they need to focus on expanding their rides rather than just shows.

Maybe RMC next year? Or is it still under raps for this year? :b :lol:

A raptor would be perfect for this park and really round out their coaster collection. Wonder if they could get some kind of discount since they are so close in proximity to RMC?

Is it just me or does it feel like the announcement for Light up the Night was kinda rushed? I mean like they said "more details will be released as we create the show" or something to that affect.

It makes me wonder if their is something else in the pipe/that's is going to be announced and they didn't want to/weren't ready to announce the drone show, yet. I don't think we should get our hopes up, but it is just a thought.

I'm terrible at reading teasers and clues, but I think I got something! (Be warned: This could just be a home park nerd begging for something new)

Recently, Silverwood posted new commercial on their Facebook page for grandparents weekend. The park puts their commercials up on the page every once in awhile (Nothing out of the ordinary there!) But this one was different, I watched it and instead of ending with the park logo (like all their other commercials), It goes to another scene. It shows the commercials actors driving away in the parking lot, when the granddaughter makes a comment "I Think I'm Ready For A Nap" and the grandma says "Night-Night".

Now I though this was kinda odd for a couple of reasons:

1. Silverwood never ends their commercials with a scene like that. (That I know of)
2. It seems to be an odd comment to make at the end of a commercial.

The other thing is this: If you take the first letters of the words that were said and unscramble them it spells TRAIN, and if you add the remaining letters than it adds the word FINN to the end.

The train part makes sense, but I can't figure out the FINN part. The best I could come up with is TRAIN FINNish, but that doesn't make any sense since Silverwood would never get rid of the train (And if they did I think most people would be horrified) Unless they are trying to quietly say it won't come back next year (for whatever reason), or they are saying that something with a fin will have a train or a train theme. And what has a train and fins, a ROLLER COASTER!!!!

What do you think?

This probably sounds stupid, but I think this might be a teaser and Light up the Night might not be the only thing coming (at least I kinda hope not!)

Yes.



At the least they would not have a lot of long distance trucking costs ...

Tremors has the original Topper Track test track. And I think RMC installed / built their big coasters but of course didn't design them. I think a Raptor with more than one train would be a great fit for Silverwood, assuming that could be in their budget.
